Question [Q] How to install new android on A1000L-F

Hi!

Can someone guide me little with rootting and installing new android on IdeaPad A1000L-F?

I've found a lot of guides, but none of those are for this wlan model only, I think? I would be so happy, if someone could tell me how and what can I do with this. Current android (4.1) is so outdated, that I cant stand this. And latest games don't even install on this version.

Thanks!

Edit: Got my tab rooted with one click root, but what now?

First, you'd have to port a recovery (cwm or twrp) to your device and fastboot flash it.

You'll have to use a repo for aosp, cm, miui, or other and make a rom.

The a1000l source code is available here: http://mobilesupport.lenovo.com/us/e...name=downloads

You will need that in your venture.

Unfortunately, this is just not a popular tablet. I bought one for my daughter and rooted it, but that's about as far as I will go with it.

Good luck!

It looks like recovery is already available for T, F, models. I'm not certain if this will translate over to G, L models or not:

This is from page 3 of that translated russian thread:

I think this recovery is not compatible for A1000L-F 8Gb model?
Version of the A1000-F can earn. Use at your own risk, no one has tested it.
The only "custom" ROM I have found is just a modified version of stock. This means no version upgrade:

I am unable to get flashtool working from those threads and fastboot is not detecting the device in Windows or Linux. I was hoping to "fastboot boot recovery.img" in order to do some testing, but no luck right now. I'll mess around some other time...

I've got working CWM on my A1000L-F thanks to the links in this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...60&postcount=2

Lenovo has only released broken source so compiling 4.2+ will be too much of a hassle for an $80 tab that my daughter uses...
